 for Surfing Experience and Lessons for 5. All Equipment included Plus Pictures and video

We signed up for a lesson as a family- ages 8 through mid-40s. Everyone had a great time and was able to successfully stand up and ride a wave by the end of the lesson. The expertise and encouragement from Doug and Nancy met each member of our group at their skill and comfort level and kept our group safe, smiling, and feeling accomplished. So grateful for this experience. ❤️

We do not offer “private” lessons. We do keep our class size small with fewer surfers, so everyone gets the attention they deserve and the coaching needed to succeed. If you are the only surfer booked you will be one on one with the instructor. The reality is small group is best, meet new people, rejoice in their success be applauded for yours. YES! Groups are more fun. It’s the perfect unique activity choice for:
